The Door to the Drummer
In worship recently, I was following Jesus in a field when I saw a door in the grass. Interestingly enough, it was lying down flat on the ground. It was right there, hidden in the grass, but there nonetheless—hidden in plain sight. As I walked up to the door, suddenly, it was standing up. It was made of heavy, heavy wood, with a tiny little window in the shape of a diamond, only a few inches across. The shape and size of the glass reminded me of an old 1960s style front door.
I then stepped up on my tip-toes to look through the glass. All I saw was darkness, turning to an orange and red color. Then all of a sudden, a spotlight came on. Through the little window, to the right of my viewing area, I saw a drum set highlighted by the spotlight. It was a full drum set with its shining chrome sparkling in the spotlight.
Then, just like that, a drummer was sitting at the drum set. I thought I recognized him, but couldn't really say for sure. As he played the drums, the entire drum set including the drummer seated at it, came closer and closer to the door, kind of floating across the ground. As I watched, the drummer and his drums came so close to the door that I thought they were going to hit it, but didn't—they just passed right through the door, through my body and disappeared behind me!
Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum
Pondering the meaning of this vision, I asked the Lord what it meant. He didn't immediately answer me. So I started to pick apart the symbols in the vision: the drum set, the spotlight, a young man as the drummer, and the heavy wooden door with the old-fashioned, diamond-shaped window that had been hidden in the grass, yet was still visible.
The Lord spoke to me as I meditated on the meaning of this vision. He said, "Marching to the beat of a different drum."
I believe there are many in the Body, right now, who are doing just that—marching to the beat of a different drum! Some of these unique ones dress differently. They think differently. They worship God differently. They honor God differently than the norm. They have a totally different, completely unique assignment than others in the Body. They're different! They act differently, and it's because they are!
They have been hidden in plain sight, tucked away in the "grass" that is here today, and tomorrow is thrown in the fire (see Matthew 6:30). They have been overlooked and are in obscurity, in the darkness, and in the background. The Church has not paid them any notice, yet they have been right there all along—just like David the shepherd boy, the overlooked brother (see 1 Samuel 16)! They have been lying down for the longest time, but now it is time for them to STAND UP! Their time has come (see Isaiah 60:1-2)!
In God's Spotlight
This group is being spotlighted now! The heavy, wooden door with a small window of vision is the old way of doing things, the "past" Church. I believe that this spotlighted group is comprised of our next generation prophets, apostles, teachers, evangelists and pastors—young men and women that are now being activated by God for such a time as this. They are being carried by the Spirit of God through doors that are currently closed! They don't need open doors from the "old" Church—they don't require our permission! God is moving them into position quite nicely without it, thank you very much!
Let's lead, follow, or get out of the way. God will not be denied! He will have His Bride! She will be marching to the beat of a different drum—shining with the light of His glory!
"Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you." (Isaiah 60:1-2 AMP)
Be blessed in the NEW that the Lord is doing for YOU! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
